Sheila Hardorf and her minions (estimated at 100 by WCCO News ) gathered at the Hudson House this afternoon. While in the comfy confines of their conference room, a crowd several times as large held anti-Walker signs, chanted and gathered signatures on a petition demanding Hardorf' be recalled.
Harsdorf was quoted as saying "That's part of the process". She neglected to mention the other part of the process, stripping Wisconsin Public employees of their collective bargaining rights and introducing unnecessary Voter ID legislation as a means of suppressing opposition voters .

"... The management of the public revenue--that searching operation in all governments--is among the most delicate and important trusts in ours, and it will, of course, demand no inconsiderable share of my official solicitude. Under every aspect in which it can be considered it would appear that advantage must result from the observance of a strict and faithful economy. This I shall aim at the more anxiously both because it will facilitate the extinguishment of the national debt, the unnecessary duration of which is incompatible with real independence, and because it will counteract that tendency to public and private profligacy which a profuse expenditure of money by the Government is but too apt to engender. Powerful auxiliaries to the attainment of this desirable end are to be found in the regulations provided by the wisdom of Congress for the specific appropriation of public money and the prompt accountability of public officers..."

Obey said on Wednesday that he was denied entry to the Capitol for the first time in his five decades of visiting and serving in Madison.
"I think the governor is a political bully and a political thug," said Obey, who urged the governor to stop locking citizens -- and in some cases legislators -- out of the building and begin negotiating with the 14 Democratic senators who fled to Illinois when it became evident that the governor and his legislative allies were seeking to limit debate on what the Democrats see as a union-busting bill.
"I think the governor has needlessly divided the state," said Obey. "I can't think of a bill that will do more to weaken the future of Wisconsin. This is an anti-education, anti-union budget, and people ought to understand that."

"You can tell Gadhafi is getting more and more desperate. First, he says the protesters are all on drugs. Remember that yesterday? He said they were all on drugs. Then he blamed the uprising on al Qaeda. And today, he said it's all the fault of the teachers union."

The Upside Down World of Scott Walker: Improving Education by Cutting Billions in Education Funding.
Would this kind of logic work anywhere?
Would you more likely to win wars by cutting defense spending?
Would the Space program reach new heights by cutting their budget by 8-10%.
Only a fool would believe this. Governor Walker thinks we are all fools.

"We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers salaries and take away their
right to strike." Adolf Hitler, May 2, 1933
On Tuesday, Republicans plan to move on with business as usual in hopes that they can put the pressure on their exiled Democratic colleagues to return. As long as the self-described “Wisconsin 14” remain in Illinois, they cannot be dragged back to the Capitol by the sergeant-at-arms.
